Second Opinions for Pediatric Eye Care

Second Opinions for Pediatric Eye Care

At Children’s Hospital Colorado, we treat the big things, the small things and everything in between.

Eyes develop and change over time. Children can have eye conditions that affect their vision many years later. That’s why it’s important to get the best treatment from experts in pediatric eye care.

The Department of Pediatric Ophthalmology at Children’s Hospital Colorado offers the most complete eye care for children in the Rocky Mountain region. Our ophthalmologists and optometrists are experts in their fields and are experienced in treating vision disorders, complex eye diseases and eye trauma, specifically in children. If you want a second opinion to make sure your child is getting the best eye care for their unique needs, start by giving us a call. After an initial call to gather information about your child’s medical condition, we’ll match you with the eye doctor best suited for an in-person second opinion visit.

Meet our second opinion eye care providers

Our eye doctors are board-certified and fellowship trained in pediatric ophthalmology. Early detection and treatment of childhood eye disease can prevent permanent vision loss and disability, which is why it’s important for children who may have a sight-threatening condition or ophthalmic disease to see a pediatric eye care specialist. Our ophthalmologists specialize in various eye conditions, so we’ll find the specialist who’s best qualified for your child’s symptoms or diagnosis.
